REPORT 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors. 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL-HOUSES. 

The School Committee recommend the appropriation of 
the following amounts for the ensuing year . Schools, $13000: 
School-houses, 11800 ; School-books and supplies, $ 900. 



PAY OF TOWN OFFICERS. 

We suggest that the appropriation for Town Officers be 
increased to $ 4500, and that hereafter the Chief of Police 
and the night police be paid from this appropriation. 



TOWN HOUSE. 

If the present arrangements continue $600 will be enough 
on Town House account for the coming year. 

The post-office room is too small and inconvenient for its 
present and prospective business. It is not probable that a 
suitable room will be provided outside the Town House for 
years to come, and it may be advisable to move the post- 
office into the lower hall. Door-ways can be made in place 
of present window's, giving through passage from side to side. 
By proper effort adequate rent can be obtained from the 
Government. The present post-office room is needed for 
Town offices. The Town business has outgrown its room? 
and changes must soon be made. 



45 

FIEE DEPARTMENT. 

The Engineers ask for an appropriation of $2500 for 
running expenses. 

We recommend the appropriation of #1500 additional for 
support of horses and pay of driver. The driver and horses 
to be under the direction of the Highway Surveyor or Road 
Commissioners, except when needed for fire-engine purposes. 
And we further recommend that the appropriation for High- 
ways and Bridges be 81000 less on that account. 

HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES. 

In consideration of the proposed appropriation for horses 
and driver we recommend for Highways and Bridges, $7000 ; 
Sidewalks, $1000 ; removing snow, $800. 

The purchase of gravel by the cart-load is unduly expen- 
sive, costing $200 or more per year. The Town ought to 
own gravel banks in all available localities where needed. 

STREET LIGHTING. 

The Street Lighting Committee will need $1500 to main- 
tain the present system, and place new lamps where needed. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 
$500 will be required for these purposes. 

STATE AID. 

We think that $1400 will be sufficient. If more is required 
it must be paid, as this appropriation — and also the Military 
Aid — is expended under the direction of the Commissioners 
of State Aid. 

MILITARY AID. 

The appropriation for 1888 was overdrawn, therefore we 
ask for a larger amount for this year, — $75n. 



46 

MEMOEIAL DAT. 

The yearly increased number of soldiers graves in our 
cemeteries requires a larger amount for the proper care 
thereof. We ask that this appropriation be increased to $200. 

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY. 

The Committee in charge ask for the usual amount, $300, 
and the avails of the sales of lots, grass, etc. 



INSURANCE. 

The insurance of the recently completed Grammar School 
House was not provided for at the last March meeting, and 
$400 will be required for insurance on that building, and 
re-insurance on other Town buildings. 

HAY SCALES. 

The usual appropriation of -$50 will be sufficient. This is 
the only dividend-paying property owned by the Town. See 
the Treasurer's Account. 

SHADE TREES. 

The Committee of the Andover Farmer's Club has judi- 
ciously expended the Tree appropriations in the past, and 
we recommend that he be allowed the same amount this 
year,— $100. 

STATE AND COUNTY TAXES. 

The amounts which may be required under this head can 
only be estimated. The large unexpended balances of last 
year's appropriations indicate that smaller appropriations 
may be made for this year. State Tax, #0500 ; County 
Tax, $6000. 



47 



DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

The Discount appropriation of last year was not large 
enough to cover the amount allowed by the Collector. That 
was owing to the fact that the amount voted to be raised by 
taxation, $ 54000, was much larger than was anticipated 
when the appropriation was made. The discount allowed 
bears about the same proportion to the amount of tax year 
by year. About two thirds of the Bank Tax discount is 
repaid to the Town, being allowed on the tax on shares 
owned elsewhere. 

We recommend an appropriation of $ 2500 for discount. 

ABATEMENT AND REMISSION OF TAXES. 

$450 will be sufficient for these purposes. Only the neces- 
sary amount will be used. 

INTEREST ON NOTES AND FUNDS. 

$1296 of this appropriation is paid yearly as interest on the 
Memorial Hall and Old Proprietors' permanent Funds, for 
which the Town is liable. The remainder of payments is 
interest on money borrowed by the Treasurer in anticipation 
of taxes. 

$2000 will cover all payments of Interest this year. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

The Chief of Police has been paid from this appropriation 
for several years past. If our suggestion that he be paid 
from the proper appropriation be adopted, $800 will probably 
defray the miscellaneous expenses of the current year. 

$350 was added to this appropriation last year to pay the 
probable expenses of the Sadlier suit for damages against the 
Town. Due preparation was made to successfully defend 
the Town, and the suit was abandoned.

ASSETS AND LIABILITIES. 

The Treasurers' Report shows the financial condition of the 
Town to be good. He was authorized to borrow $10000 on 
the New Grammar School House account, but less than 
$7000 was required. 

THE LAWKEN0E BRIDGES. 

Under an act of the General Court the County Commis- 
sioners have awarded $3500 as Andover's proportion of the 
expense of rebuilding the Lawrence bridges. 

The award must be paid, with interest from Feb. 1, 1889, 
and we advise that $3520 be appropriated therefor. 

THE ANNUAL TOWN MEETING. 

In view of the large and increasing amount of business to 
be transacted at the Annual Town Meeting the Selectmen 
think it would be wise to fix an earlier hour for the meeting. 
While it is within the province of the Selectmen to fix the 
hour for opening the meeting, it is thought best to obtain the 
sense of the Town on the subject.

Overseers' Report. 



The property of the Town in the Almshouse Department 
is in good condition. Mr. and Mrs. Allen remain in charge, 
and their efficiency and ability for the position are too well 
known to need comment. A visit to the house will convince 
anyone that a good housekeeper is in charge, and that the 
Town's wards are properly cared for. 

Mr. Allen believes in keeping buildings in good repair, and 
the Overseers, acting upon his suggestions, recommend a 
small appropriation for that purpose. 

The number of inmates now remaining in the Almshouse 
is considerably smaller than a year ago, as has been the case 
throughout the past year, making the cost of support per 
week somewhat in excess of last year. The general running 
expenses ef the Almshouse and farm are about the same 
year by year: the smaller the number of inmates the higher 
the rate of expense per capita. 

An effort was made early in the year to obtain homes for 
the children then in the Almshouse, but upon notifying the 
parents some of them objected to having them taken away, 
and agreed to take care of them themselves : accordingly 
they were allowed to take them. A part have returned again, 
and a part have not. 

The inmates have been generally healthy. Several of the 
older ones have passed away during the year. 

The tramp nuisance has abated somewhat during the past 
year, but is still a crying evil, as we think anyone who would 
take care of the " tramp room '' would admit. 

Another part of our Report shows that a considerable num- 
ber of people — individuals and families — are unable to en- 
tirely support themselves ; but with help from the Town — 
some more, some less — maintain themselves and families; 
making, as usual a large amount expended for outside relief.

Highway Surveyor's Report. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

The Highway Surveyor herewith submits his Report for 
the year ending February 4th, 1889. 

The following is a report of my work upon the Highways 
during the past year. I first selected a portion of Essex 
Street, the most travelled thoroughfare in town ; the gutters 
were paved on both sides ; 60 yards of whole stone and 287 
yards of crushed stone were laid ; the street graded according 
to the established grade. I then gravelled the greater part of 
both sidewalks. Thinking the Town would like to know the 
cost of that job, I kept an account of every item ; the whole 
amount was $973.27. I then laid 360 yards of stone on 
Main Street, 87 yards on Pike Street. 114 yards in Marland 
Village, and Cuba Street, 387 yards on Elm Street, 125 
yards in Scotland District. Three pieces of road have been 
stoned in the West District, and one piece at Ballard Vale. 
These are the most costly jobs that have been done on the 
Highways the past year. $450 has been expended in re- 
pairing culverts, and $260 in clearing gutters. 

On the 12th of March it will be remembered, we had the 
greatest fall of snow that has fallen at one time for many years. 
In less than three days it went away ; the culverts which were 
half full of ice would not carry off the water ; the result was our 
roads were badly gullied in many places. It cost the town 
about 81000 to repair the damage caused by that storm. 

In repairing the Highways, I have endeavored to improve 
those which were in the worst condition, and those which 



61 

are the most travelled ; but there are still many places which 
need attention. 

The Sidewalks have been repaired as usual, and parts of 
new ones have been built on High, Elm, Summer Streets, 
and Punchard Avenue. Maple Avenue has been gravelled, 
also portions of Main, School, Abbott, Phillips, Salem, Cuba, 
Green and Central Streets. Portions of walks have been 
gravelled at Frye Village and Ballard Yale ; a new one has 
been built in Abbott Village. We have now a continuous 
walk through all the villages, and one part way to the West 
Church. 

During the four years I have served as Highway Surveyor, 
and Road Commissioner, I have laid more than 5000 yards 
of stones in our roads. I think if we should take one half 
of the money we raise for our Highways, and use it in stoning 
our roads, instead of carting on so much gravel, we would in 
time greatly improve them. My experience with crushed 
stone has been very satisfactory. In 188b' 1 laid 237 yards 
on Main Street, south of the Town House. It has been a 
smooth and dry road since. It has often been said small 
stones are as good for the top course of a stoned road as 
crushed ones ; my experience is they are not, for these 
reasons: whole stones require from one to three inches of 
gravel to cover and keep them in place, — the more gravel, 
the more mud, — while less than one inch is sufficient to 
cover crushed stones ; in dry weather whole stones will come 
to the surface, crushed ones will not. The cost of crushing 
stones one and one half inches in diameter is about 75 cts. a 
yard. A good sized machine, with plenty of help to feed it, 
will run through four to five yards an hour. The smaller 
they are crushed the less it will do. 

I would like to say one word as to the cost of gravel and 
crushed stone at the Town pit. The cost of getting out the 
best gravel, free from stones, including carting the stones 
out of the way, is about 50 cts. a yard, carting to town 50 cts. 
costing one dollar. Crushed stones at pit 75 cts., carting 
50 cts., costing one dollar and a quarter. I consider a yard 



62 

of stones worth four of gravel. I have made a note of many 
of these points, and I am fully convinced that there is no 
material we can put upon our roads cheaper and more 
durable than crushed stone. I hope, therefore, that the 
Town will soon own a crusher. 

The extension of Chester Street, at Ballard Vale, has been 
built the past year. After completing the road-bed 50 feet 
in width, the appropriation was not exhausted ; I then 
gravelled a greater part of the roadway. It has opened up 
many desirable house lots. At the close of the fiscal year of 
Feb. 1888, there was covered into the town treasury 1278.74 
of unexpended appropriation for removing snow. Scarcely 
any of the bills contracted during the winter were handed in 
until after Town meeting, and the Town was owing out- 
standing bills to that amount. The snow-storm that came 
on the 12th of March cost the town between $400 and $500 
dollars for removing snow. $800 was voted for removing 
snow the past year; the result, our snow money was soon 
expended. 

I recommend the following amounts for the ensuing year: 
For Highways and Bridges, |8000 00 

For Sidewalks, 1000 00 

For Removing Snow, 800 (X)

Report of the Chief Engineer 



Fire Department. 



To the Honorable Bo akd op Selectmen: 

Gentlemen, — In compliance with the regulations of the 
Fire Department I have the honor to submit the following 
Report. 

The force of the Department consists of five Engineers, 
twenty-two members of And over Steamer, No. 1, and B. F. 
Smith Hook and Ladder Truck, and sixteen members of J. 
P. Bradlee Steamer, No. 2. 

The apparatus consists of two third-class steam fire-engines, 
one hand-engine, with hose-carriages for each ; one four- 
wheeled horse hose-carriage, one hook-and-ladder truck, and 
one supply wagon. 

h\ the Department there is forty-seven hundred feet of 
hose in good condition, and seven hundred feet of old hose 
unfit for service. The fire alarm connecting the two engine- 
houses is in good condition, and answers all intended purposes. 

During the past year there have been nine alarms of fire 
as follows : 

March 3. House of George Ripley, Central Street. 
April 6. Smoke House of J. H. Flint, High Street. 
April 7. Barn of Peter Shevlin. 

June 5. House and farm buildings of W. H. Tucker. 
July 4. House and farm buildings of Jesse Clark. 
Sept. 30. House and barn of Jeremiah Leary, Pike Street. 



64 

Oct. 1. House of Jeremiah Leary, Pike Street. 

Oct. 21. Elm House. 

Dec. 25. Grass in Old South Cemetery. 

The purchase of horses by the Town last year for use in the 
Fire Department and on the Highways has, in my judgment, 
been a move in the right direction, and enables this Depart- 
ment to respond promptly to all calls. Under circumstances 
over which the officers of this Department had no control, 
the horses have this year been some additional expense to 
the Town ; but by proper action of the Town I believe they 
can be profitably employed without any extra expense in any 
of the Departments. 

I recommend an appropriation of 82500 for the running 
expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing year ; 
also the sum of $1500 for maintenance of horses and pay 
of driver.

The Selectmen have provided an office which is much 
appreciated by all the members of the police, and is conve- 
nient to the public. 

During the past year I have had the granting of permits 
to tramps for their lodging. I have taken their names, and 
have written out a general description of each man. They 
are all as a class well, able-bodied men, and I think it would 



• 17 

be well to provide some kind of work for them to pay for 
their lodging. Last year there were 1353 put up; this year 
there were 1076. 

This year there has been one regular night-watch on 
duty. We have done more effective duty than ever before. 
I do not think there has been so little liquor sold in town 
during my service as there is now. 

1 suggest the establishment of a Lockup at or near the 
Town House. • 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE F. CHEEVER, 

Chief of Police.

Report of Cemetery Committee 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with statement of receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending Feb. 4th, 1889. 

During the past year the wall has been extended to the 
line of the old railroad, that being as far as the wall is 
needed for the present. A large amount of gravel has been 
moved. The walks and avenues have been cleaned. 

The Committee thought it advisable to dispose of the 
standing wood on the lower part of the Cemetery lot, and 
have made sale of the same for the sum of I960 ; that 
amount has been paid to the Town Treasurer. 

Seven burial lots have been sold. 

The wall should be pointed and the walks newly gravelled 
and other improvements made, to keep the premises in good 
order. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the usual appropriation 
of $300, with the proceeds of such sales as may be made 
from the premises during the ensuing year.

Seventeenth Annual Report 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



Another year of uneventful usefulness 1ms been added to 
the history of Memorial Hall. Xo changes of any moment 
have been made, but we are happy to call attention to the 
increase of periodical literature in our reading-room. It ha> 
been found that no additions to the library are more heartily 
welcomed than the magazines and illustrated papers. We 
have therefore made a large addition to our list of these, from 
the best American and English publications. 

In addition to this, we have thought it best at the close of 
each year to furnish the library with two completely new 
bound sets of the three most popular juvenile magazines, — 
St. Nicholas, Wide Awake, and Harper's Young People. 
The current numbers of these periodicals are always worn 
out by the reading-room use. No more wholesome or 
educating reading for young people can be found than that 
contained in these magazines : and as an offset to the fact 
that the use of fiction shows so high a percentage in our 
Report, we should congratulate ourselves that much of it 
is of a hi oh order.
